Classical Ionic Capital from the Agora of Athens

A cooperation project with the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung for the investigation of two Ionic marble capitals from the Athenian agora starting in 2013 was leading to the fullscale reconstruction of capital 2972 in 2015/2016 on the basis of an electronic measurement and a form created with the aid of the prototyping method (sand 3Dprint; chalk, calcite and marble dust as ground; natural pigment according to the Price Method in tempera technique). Polychromy: Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann.
